    G Shocks are made in the China Casio plant with Japanese parts. There are about a million variations, so look for the Atomic Solar ones. AFAIK, there are no GPS equipped G Shocks, MAYBE the Rangeman?

    I think the G Shock is the way to go for simple durability. A few questions:

    1.Is the frogman worth the price to get ISO certified dive tool?

    2.for the 6900 series, solar or not? I like the blackout battery models but the solar is attractive from a battery life standpoint.

    FYI-I got a response on Amazon from a seller that G Shocks are made in Thailand, with Jap parts, and none are USA made...even tho some are described as such by Amazon.
